not before the last zero, before the last 2 zeros
bc there are 2 digits after the decimal place in 0.17, you move the decimal place twice when putting it back in
if it were 0.6 for example, there is only one number after the decimal place, you youd only only move the decimal by one place when putting it back in
Oohhh lmao you explained it well. Thanks

But it's 0.17 so theres decimal point needs to move twice. so 1020.00
if it was 01.7 then you'd move it once so then it'd be what you got, 10200.0

Ok by putting the decimal point where you do you are in fact just dividing by 10 essentially - maybe without realising it. The key thing here though is that you have to divide by 100 so the decimal point moves two places to the left not one.
